The Honey Do List: June 2016

Each Month Sarajo"s husband, Eric puts up a photo to inspire her to use up some of her beads. They call it The Honey Do List. 
They have invited others to play along which I enjoy doing very much!
Here is this month's inspiration and what Eric had to say about it:  I wanted to use a shot from our recent trip to Oregon for this month's challenge.  I took this picture at the Japanese Gardens in Portland, where I noticed the reflection of the ferns on the top of the rippling reflecting pool.  I waited several minutes, dodging small children, until a koi happened by--making the shot even more interesting.  Take inspiration from the color palette, the fish, the ferns, the water, the clouds--whatever strikes your fancy!  

So last night I happened to catch the sunset and I think it is spectacular. What I really think is exciting was the colors and where I ended up this month with this challenge.
I made bead after bead after bead. All month trying to figure out how to reflect the photo. Last minute I found a tin and made a  mostly orange necklace. I can't wear orange but I sure do like it..1 


I used Swarovski Crystal beads along with some small Czech beads and a polymer clay bead. I made the tin focal. I used this because the orange reflected the Koi fish and there is a fern pattern on it with a little water swirl
